I've found lot of people asking for similar issue but not received satisfied answer....
We are building an application that one of its features is to query for a weather forecasts in every city of the world using your API.
I need to display possible cities names on webform and use them in API calls but I do not know proper values\city names - e.g. Warsaw or Warszawa ? Crocow or Krakow? And these are just examples I know as I am form Poland :) I am sure that there is a lot more.

So the problem is: how to insert to our application all the cities names that will be correct and compatible with your API  calls ? can you appoint any reference database ? If this also contains number of population so I can limit the cities only to big ones I would be very happy:)

We can not possibly publish this list.  It contains millions of cities and is constantly changing.

Your best bet is to make your queries by lat/lon
